Beautifully composed post, Margie. And I realize this may be repetitive, but I really think this stone is my favorite. Absolutely beautiful.

Happy weekend, friend.

The stone and the Trillum are beautiful! I'm so glad you got a chance to be outside!

Pretty colors on the stone. I can see the robin had much to do with it! :)


I love your stone robin interpretation. The colours are so lush and your stitches are wonderful!

Margie, Your new stone is beautiful. I have been watching the trillium on my walks as well. A sure sign of springtime. You captured the colors so nicely in your choice of threads. I also like the Wendell Berry quote from your last post. Wendell Berry is coming to speak at Williams College, in the town where I live, next week. I hope to get to the lecture. He is inspirational.


Your robin stone is wonderful ! Your special eyes, mind, heart and hands have the power to decode Nature to retranscribe it into stitches. You'll never stop amazing us, Margie !
Haven't you never thought yet of crochetting a stone nest ? :)
Have a nice week-end, Margie, wishing you good luck for your busy days ...


It's so strange to see red trilliums - ours are white here in the Pacific Northwest. They do get a pink tinge to the petals when they are done blooming. The ones I planted in my yard are almost finished for the season. They are one of the happy signs of spring for many people, and bring back fond memories of my grandparents' property in Oregon when I was a child.

The stone is gorgeous!


How ever did you affix the word "stone" to that stone?


All are really beautiful in your blog: creations, photos, comments. It's amazing for me. I write a comment on you in my blog. It was impossible not doing!

Beautiful post. When I was young in NZ the books we read came from England so we grew up with Red Robins and snowmen and foxes and squirrels...so many things we do not see in New Zealand. I was so excited as an adult to see a real Red Robin in Kew Gardens. Our children these days have books written by our own authors about our own world. Thank you for sharing your beautiful art. I love your blog.
